Every morning I make a smoothie to start the day. I love that they are easy to make, give me the energy I need for the day and I can throw them in a to go cup if I need to. I have tried a lot of combinations of smoothies, but this one is hands down my favorite. It is has all the flavor but not the crazy amount of calories of a smoothie from a smoothie chain. My kids beg for bites of this one and are always sad if I make another flavor.
You will need:
- Vanilla Greek Yogurt (5.3 OZ cup)
- 1/2 Cup Almond Milk
- Pineapple, Mango and Strawberries
There are a couple of ways to make this smoothie. The first involves using fresh fruit and also a handful of ice. The second way is the way I prefer to make my smoothies, so they aren't watered down at all.
Slice a pineapple and mango in to chunks. Hull strawberries. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze over night. Throw 3-4 chunks of pineapple, 3-4 chunks of mango and 2-3 strawberries in your smoothie and blend. If you want to make it really easy I believe most stores sell frozen fruit with this combination, but I love freezing my own.
Do you drink a smoothie in the morning?
